The President and the Scholarship Committee of the CCF have also recently announced the 2015 Scholarships in the amount of $55,000 to Greek and Greek/Cypriot students who study full-time in American Universities.

Cyprus Children’s Fund has been supporting Cypriot children in need since 1974, with a program that connects sponsors in the USA with underprivileged children in Cyprus, based on one-on-one sponsorship. The funds are sent to Cyprus four times a year and every last cent reaches the families in Cyprus.  The organization currently supports over 400 children.

In addition to the above, last year’s $50,000 in scholarships, the yearly sponsorship program funds and almost $70,000 in other donations add to a total of over $400,000 in donations, scholarships and children sponsorships in the last two years.

The President of the organization notes: “ We are extremely happy to be able to help Cypriot children and Greek, Cypriot students who now need us the most. On behalf of the Board of Directors I would like to express our greatest appreciation to all of our donors and sponsors who make this possible. We want them to know that their generous contribution truly makes a difference in the lives of needy children”.
